    Re: Eggs....eggs....eggs

    juve said I can eat whole eggs so I've been having 2 in my omelette with about 5 whites.. I am scared to go above 2 yolks but I would if I could. Haven't noticed any ill effects to date.

    Good question.

    There is little correlation between blood cholesterol anf food cholesterol

    The pathologist Dr. Kurt Landé and the biochemist Dr. Warren Sperry at the Department of Forensic Medicine of New York University were the first to study that question (25). The year was 1936. To their surprise, they found absolutely no correlation between the amount of cholesterol in the blood and the degree of atherosclerosis in the arteries of a large number of individuals who had died violently. In age group after age group their diagrams looked like the starry sky.

    So, you can eat 3 yolks a day (and as many whites as you want) w/o any worrying (unless you already have serious cholesterol problems)
    If you don't shut your fucking mouth, I will kill you.

    That was an old study, but I guess not much has or can change.

    I usually eat about 6 whites and 1-2 yokes

    So , 3 yolks a day would be the cut off line?

    I sometimes eat 5 or 6 yolks a day....

    My cholesterol is good ...

    5 or 6 yolks a day once in a while won't hurt

    I wouldnt' eat 6 yolks a day 7/7 though

    BTW, high GI carbs and saturated fats are far worse than yolks for your cholesterol

    I eat 3 yolks and 3 egg whites Mon.-Frid.--I was thinking of just eating 4 whole eggs instead of 3 and 3-----should I stay with 3 and 3?

    Egg beaters are great guys. The generic safeway ones taste just the same and they are really cheap. High protein 0 cholestorol.

    Re: Eggs....eggs....eggs

    I don't like to waste. I just eat 3 whole eggs a day. I get enough protein elsewhere. I'm 17. I doubt my cholestrol will be a problem when my friends devour Burger King, Hershey's, Pixie Stix, and soda all day though
